First off, the dedication in this book is the most heartwarming dedication I have ever read. I usually skip through them, but I am glad this one caught my eye.
Divorce attorney Harper James is one jaded character, constantly throughout the book she advocates divorce and cutting ties rather than working things out.
"Divorce is just the euthanization of a dying relationship."Harper has many clever lines like this throughout the novel. All logic, no emotion... like a young Dr. Brennan from Bones, except a lawyer.
The story of the jaded Ms. Harper is told in a back and forth narrative from present time, to her youth and what led her to be so cold.
This story was laugh out loud funny, cute, and sexy, without feeling like an erotic novel. The moments in which they describe Harper and her first love touched my heart. Great Chick Lit novel with more heart and romance than the usual!
Writing Style: 3/5
If only... the saddest words in the english language.
